You'll find them on shoes.

Boy, they sure make shoes a lot cuter. (And... psst... they come in red too!)

They are sitting pretty on pillows.

And they are even "talking" on phones.

In the September issue of Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking magazine, we highlighted foxes in the Trend Talk column. Check out these hip and cool fox-inspired projects.

Mondays Musings

Hey, Moxie Fabbers!
Did you have a good weekend? Hope so.
Lots of random thoughts in my head today so let's get to it.

Did you see the folks over at BasicGrey just revealed two new collections of paper crafting products? I'd be hard pressed to pick a favorite. On one hand, there's the Vivienne collection.




On the other hand, there's the Aurora collection.




Such. Good. Stuff.
Not sure I'll be able to pick. In fact, I'm not sure I will be able to control myself when they hit the stores.
Yep. I just "might" have to go on the PB&J meal plan so I can appropriately budget for it. Yeah. That's the ticket.... wink

Speaking of good things, how about this scrapbook page by Melissa Mann over on the Lawn Fawn blog?


In a few words: TOTAL FUN, TOTAL COOLNESS.
Love all those circles. Love all the details! And do you see the stitching? Look close. It's so cool!

And speaking of goodness, this card from Chari Moss (also on the Lawn Fawn blog) is a blast from the past. I must admit that I totally giggled! High 5, Chari!


Waka... Waka... Waka...
Game over.

And how fun is this?

Abbey DeHart showed over on Hazel & Ruby's blog how she altered this bag in a totally simple, totally practical way. Get this! She used permanent markers with some of Hazel & Ruby's stencil-masks. Head on over for the how-to. You won't be disappointed.

And talk about pure eye candy! Yana Smakula shared this beauty of a card over on the Neat and Tangled blog.


Talk about a beautiful color combo! And talk about a well-designed card!
By the way, there's a video from Yana about her card in the post. Be sure to check it out. Good work, Yana! 

I was roaming around Scrapbook.com the other day, and I found myself drooling over this stamp and die combo from Sizzix.


And then there was this one too. 


Woodgrain + a camera + a happy face = I'm there. Yes, please.

Finally, are you looking for a creative challenge or two? Today's the deadline to submit projects for consideration for the March 2015 issue of Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking magazine. Yeah. Those editors work that far ahead. Go here for all the deets.

Here's to a good week,
Teri 

PS. Have you joined the Moxie Fab World Blog Roll yet? We are so, so close to hitting 1,600 blogs. If you haven't linked your blog hop yet, what are you waiting for? ALL are welcome in the Moxie Fab World. I'd be honored to have you link up to the blog roll!

The Winners of the Clicking Cameras Challenge

And bam boom CLICK!
The time has come to bring the Clicking Cameras Challenge to a close.
(Insert sad face here.)
Seriously, y'all, you rocked this challenge! Cards, art journals, scrapbook pages and journaling cards... you created all of those things. And every single one of them used a camera in some super fun way. Yes. You all rock (... hard). A big hearty thank you from me to all of you for taking part.

So let's name some winners, shall we?
And the winners are....


Oh boy, oh boy! Caryn's card sure rocks! From the clean, crisp design to a fabulous color combination, this is a well put together card. Plus I especially dig how Caryn has the paper with the words coming out of the camera. It's just like a real snapshot. Well done, Caryn!


Nail polish + paper crafting? GET OUT! Talk about clever! Stephanie used nail polish to color in the camera on her journaling card (as well as add color to her other journaling cards shown in the picture here). I think I just might have to try this... soon! 



I just love Tyra's card because everything about her card screams Clicking Cameras. From the embossed cameras to the die-cut camera to the sentiment, it's truly camera-tastic! Nice job, Tyra!

Congrats to the winners! Please drop me an email (complete with your snail mail addresses) at teriishere AT gmail DOT com so I can get you hooked up with your Challenge Winning badge and a We Totally Click stamp set from Paper Smooches. (And please be sure to write MFW Challenge Winner in the subject line.)

I could only name three winners for this challenge, but I'd also like to send a Moxie Fab shout-out to these folks:

Tune in next week when I announce another challenge. (And there "might" be a quick one launched this Friday too!)

Smiling back at all of you,
Teri
